The three quickest ways to microwave eggs

The Three Quickest Ways to Microwave Eggs

Really love eggs but don't have a ton of time to prepare 'em? Here are BuzzFeed's three easy ways to make delicious eggs in a flash.

Two-minute scrambled eggs
Crack two eggs in a mug
Add a splash of milk for fluffiness
Set for two minutes on high

Poached egg
Crack one egg in a mug
Add 1/3 cup of water
Cover with a dish
Set for 50 seconds on high
Burst for 10 seconds if not done

The 2.5 minute omelet
Crack 2 eggs in a bowl
Spread evenly on a greased flat dish
Microwave (covered) for 90 seconds
Stir, then another 60 seconds uncovered

Of course microwave power varies, so you may need a little more (or less) time.

works real good if you dont mind cleaning the oven after the egg blows up all over it. so if you love your eggs scrambled,give this a try,they sure will be scrambled. Make sure you have the oven on high,that way it makes a bigger mess.

Why would you want to microwave if not necessary? God knows what that radiation is doing to you. Just use the stovetop.

Getting up at 3 AM, starting work @ 4 AM, microwave eggs, YES. Take them mixed up in bag, and first break, zap! Breakfast is ready. Don't know anyone who wants to cook at 3 in the morning...

I tried another way to make omelettes. I use a Heavy Freezer Bag with the Zip Loc
And when I have friends or family over for Breakfast or Brunch, I chop up Onions, Peppers, Sausage, Crisp Fried Bacon, or Bacon Bits, and Cheese, and let each person put their name on the bag, and put what they would like in the Bag, Then beat 3 eggs and put in the bag.
Put a large pot of Boiling water on the Stove, Place bags in the boiling water, and when the eggs are well set, take them out with tongs, and Everyone has their breakfast at the same time.

That's a cool way for a party and guests inthe morning, but I'd never make cooking in a plastic bag a habit. The chemicals that come out of the plastic are harmful. Only special plastic that has been manufactured in the last two years is sort of "safe" to use. Plastic bags is not one of them.

Looks like it would take more time than on the stove in an omelet pan. Only takes a minute, why go through all that with a microwave"?
